Hotel reception manager, Lisette, was absolutely wonderful and exceeded our expectations. We had a few minor problems with electrical service outages, but she was adept at handling our concerns. The hotel was a little difficult to find at first-- better signage would certainly help. The hotel is built into side of mountainous terrain, so accommodations are on several levels and... More

Great location just off Orient beach, nestled on a hill overlooking the bay in a neighbourhood of villa's. Nice to be able to walk to the beach and retire to your own patio surrounded by lush gardens and panoramic views in a quiet setting. Our room had a full size fridge and kitchen, huge bathroom and shower to match.Hotel stay... More

We have stayed at his little piece of paradise for 10 summer now. It is a charming small hotel with a beautiful view Orient Bay. The staff is outstanding, always helpful and like a family. The rooms are well maintained and clean. Lush gardens surround each villa where you will see cute little humming birds. You are within walking distance... More

The lovely D and I spent 16 days on St. Martin, and inhabitants of Hotel La Plantation (HLP). It was our fourth stay at La Plantation. Two words come to mind........charming, as in the overall look and ambience of the hotel, and location, as in juxtaposition to Orient Village and the sea. Nestled in the hills overlooking Orient Bay, the... More

Beautiful rooms..2 minute walk to orient beach..gated resort that is as safe as can be with 24 hour security. The front desk staff and manager are always available and eager to please. The gardeners... More

Rooms are very large, nice surroundings and very calm. You can easily walk to the beach and the place of the village ( where the restaurants are). Sine Orient Bay is. A private area, you feel secure wherever you're. Nice breakfast in the morning. Not a lot of services during the day and Wifi does not work well in the... More

If you are looking for a "resort hotel" this is not the place for you. If you want to experience the local culture and what St. Martin is about then you should choose it. They call St. Martin the "friendly island" which could be when you arrive at the front desk ONLY after 10AM. If you have problems walking and... More

My partner & I stayed here for 8 nights during the second week of March. Although we had been through St Martin a couple of times on our way to Anguilla, this was our first time staying on the island. Although I don’t feel that we made the wrong decision in staying at La Plantation, this is a hard one... More
